3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle pours a clear orange amber with some clumpy, white head. A fair amount of spruce in the nose, some pine but far from hoppy, malt, cracker. Flavor is malty, orange, some spruce, a little dusty, some light spice but nothing definable. Medium bodied, dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head that faded quickly. Smells of biscuit, spruce and caramel. Tastes of spices, caramel, and spruce and a sweet fruit flavor. Mouthfeel is medium and syrupy, with pretty good chewy carbonation. Overall this is a great tasting winter ale. Pretty solid all around besides appearance.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium amber pour with cream-colored head. Aroma is rather faint - some spruce, caramel and fruit. Taste is quite sweet, lots of fruit and some light spruce. Virtually no bitterness or hop notes in this. Iím not a huge fan of real sweet brews, but this one is quite good.

Pours a clear amber with a small white ring. Aroma of caramel, spruce & biscuit. Taste is toasty cereal with a bunch of spices. Feels a bit warm on the tongue but not overwhelming. Easy drinking winter warmer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours clear orange-amber with a small off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves no real lacing. Aroma is quite light with notes of caramel, spices. Flavor is light to medium sweet and spiced, minimal bitterness. No real notes of spruce apparent to me, except maybe in the far finish. Interesting beer, but nothing special

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Nice pour, small irregular head, good lacing, copper color. Smells of parsnips and barnyard aromas, also a little sweet. Taste is mature, woody, a little more toasty/burnt than others of the style. Slightly alcoholic tinge, light on the spice. Good palate/body. Very well done, a nice different take on a winter beer.
